Title: Using OpenMotif with LispWorks

ID: 17021


Product: LispWorks for Linux
Version: 4.2
OS: Linux

Description:
The correct version of OpenMotif to use with LispWorks for Linux 4.2 is OpenMotif 2.1. It is usually installed in

 /usr/X11R6/lib/libXm.so.2


To use OpenMotif with LispWorks, install OpenMotif 2.1 and edit the file

 lib/4-2-0-0/config/use-motif-library  

to specify

:prefer-version 2


Please note that a development version of OpenMotif 2.2 appears to be binary-incompatible with LispWorks 4.2 This is installed in

 /usr/X11R6/lib/libXm.so.3


If you get this error:

 Error during GUI startup:
  Could not register handle for external module X-UTILITIES::CAPIX11:
  libXm.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory.


then the problem may be that you're trying to use OpenMotif, but have the wrong version installed.
